Today we'll take a moment to recognize the fifteenth anniversary of loss of Shuttle Challenger. If you're not too familiar with the incident, you can read up here. There are also numerous Wing Commander items named in honor of the ship and its crew, such as the McAuliffe System, Challenger Quadrant and STS-51L System. No doubt there are other references. Feel free to note them at the Chat Zone if you find some. Thanks to Death, Locke and Klaus for some of the information here.
Episode 10 of Wing Commander Academy, "On Both Your Houses," has been posted to BlackLance.org. In this episode, Blair, Maniac and Archer get more than they bargain for while searching for a crashed Kilrathi on a tropical world. You can download Episode 10 here. There's some interesting stuff in this one.
A few people noticed this, but we thought it would minimalize confusion if we waited until now to post about it. Our previous two WCA episodes, "Recreation" and "Walking Wounded," were misnumbered. "Walking Wounded" should be episode 8 and "Recreation" should be episode 9. If you're building a library of divxes, you might want to make this slight correction to your file naming scheme.
Seb noticed that the WC Movie will be showing on the UK channel Sky Movie Max at 11:00 pm on Wednesday. This apparently isn't a pay per view event and is free if you have the channel. Be sure to check your local television listings to be sure. This is a nice treat since the UK got really screwed theatrically in regards to the movie.
Week Fourteen Trivia will be out tomorrow, so if you haven't done so yet, be sure to send in your current answers today! Some people have had trouble with the Kilrathi used this week. Don't forget our Kilrathi-to-English page is still up. But I won't make it too easy by posting a direct link. You can send answers in through ChrisReid@wcnews.com
